I'm going to assume you meant RCA inputs, so u can get a sig to the amp. Well i have 2 of these amps and ripped em apart to find how to wire them up. i know this is a real old thread but i know there is going to be others wanting to use these old good powerful amps. So here we go... First off u need to cut off the din plug. There are lots of other wires inside that big black wire. The first braided copper wire on the outside is a ground that goes to the chassis of the amp inside. I don't use it. Use the black ground wire comming out the amp. Now look for a red wire. This is your ACC power. This is power that comes on when you turn your key forward. There is a brown wire. When the amp is on this wire puts out 0.35 volts. I'm not sher what this wire is. i don't use it. My KAC-801 s work great with out them hooked up, so tape that wire up so it doesn't short out. There is a big white wire inside that has 3 wires inside of it. There is a bare wire inside that white wire, this is a common sound signal ground. Use this on the outside of the RCA plugs for both rite and left rca common sound sig ground. The white wire inside the white wire is the left positive sound signal. U can run this to the center of an RCA connector as your positive RCA sound sig. Then there is a yellow wire inside the white wire is the right positive sound signal. U can run this to the center of an RCA connector as your positive RCA sound sig. These are your right and left sound inputs done now. Now for your power. Big red is your main power. have this powered all the time, Use a fused line. Big black is your ground. ground to your chassis. then your 2 speaker wires. these are +red, grey and -grey for right, and +blue and -grey for right. Enjoy!
